Loading an original in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)
The all-in-one has an ADF with a maximum capacity of 50 originals. To load an original in the ADF, follow these steps:
  1. Ensure that no originals are placed on the flatbed scanner glass.
  2. Place all originals in the ADF input tray with the print-side up and with the first page to be scanned/copied/faxed on top of the stack.
  3. Adjust the paper-width guides to fit the size of the originals.
Loading an original on the scanner glass
An original can also be copied/scanned by placing it on the scanner glass. To load an original on the scanner glass, follow these steps:
  1. Ensure that no originals are placed on the flatbed scanner glass.
  2. Lift the flatbed scanner lid.
  3. Place the original facedown on the scanner glass in the bottom-right corner, with the sides of the original touching the right and bottom edges.
  4. It is important to place the original in the lower-right corner. Otherwise, part of the original might be clipped in the resulting scan.
Loading media into Tray 1 and 2
To load Tray 1 or Tray 2, follow these steps:
  1. Pull the tray out of the all-in-one.
  2. To load the paper in Tray 1, raise and remove the output tray.
  3. To load paper between 11 inches (279 mm) and 14 inches (356 mm) long, move the latch on the tray to the right and lower the front of the tray. (There is no need to lower the front of the tray for letter-size or A4-size paper.)
  4. Place the media with the print side down in the tray and slide the media width and length guides to the edges of the media.
  5. When loading Tray 1, reattach and close the output tray.
  6. Slide the tray into the all-in-one.
  7. Pull out the extension on the output tray.
  8. Select the appropriate media type option in the application or printer driver.
The all-in-one speed specification is based on Tray 1. When Tray 2 is installed, it becomes the default tray (unless otherwise specified by the user). As a result, any job sent to the all-in-one with Tray 2 selected or as autoselect, the job will print slower as compared to the quoted speed specifications. This is because Tray 2 has a longer paper path and the printing is, therefore, slower than Tray 1.
Manual duplexing
Users can also perform manual duplexing with the all-in-one. From the software program, print one side of the document. Turn the paper over in the tray and then repeat the print job, this time printing the second side.
Printing on special media
The four types of special media on which the HP Officejet 9100 series all-in-one can print are as follows:
  • Cards and envelopes
  • Transparencies
  • Photo paper
  • Custom size
Cards or envelopes
To use cards or envelopes, follow these steps:
  1. Remove Tray 1 from the printer.
  2. Remove the output tray and then remove all media from Tray 1.
  3. Insert the cards or envelopes into the tray (envelopes should be loaded with the flaps facing up and to the right).
  4. Slide the media width and length guides to the edges of the cards or envelopes.
  5. Replace the output tray and insert Tray 1 into the printer.
  6. Start the job from the computer, after selecting the correct media size and type.
Transparencies
To use transparencies, follow these steps:
  1. Remove Tray 1 from the printer.
  2. Remove the output tray and then remove all media from Tray 1.
  3. Insert the transparencies into the tray, with the rough side down and the adhesive strip pointing forward.
  4. Slide the media width and length guides to the edges of the transparencies.
  5. Replace the output tray and insert Tray 1 into the printer.
  6. Start the job from the computer, after selecting the correct media size and type.
  7. Remove each transparency as it prints and set it aside to dry. Allowing wet media to stack up might cause smearing.
Photo paper
Photographs taken using a digital camera can be printed using the all-in-one. The printing can be done either directly from the memory card or from a software program, such as the HP Photo & Imaging software. Use Best print quality to print photographs. However, this takes longer to print and requires more memory. The all-in-one can produce 4,800 x 1,200 optimized dpi resolution when using the PCL 6 driver for Windows 98/XP/Me/2000 operating systems. In addition, all-in-one supports the PS driver for Windows 2000/XP, Mac 9.2.x, and Mac (10.1 and later) operating systems.
To print digital photographs from a program, do the following:
  1. Load the appropriate paper in Tray 1.
  2. Start the job from the computer after selecting appropriate print-quality setting, media size, and media type.
  3. Remove each sheet of media as it prints and set it aside to dry. Allowing wet media to stack up might cause smearing.
Custom-size media
When printing on custom-size media, adjust the length and width guides in the tray, and, if necessary, extend the tray size to accommodate larger media. Use Tray 1 when printing on paper that is 3 to 8.5 inches wide and 5 to 14 inches long (76.2 to 216 mm wide and 127 to 356 mm long). Customize the media size before printing the document if the application supports custom-size media. If the application does not support custom-size media, set the size in the printer driver, create the document and print it. Reformatting might be needed on existing documents to print them correctly on custom paper sizes.
To use custom-size media, do the following:
  1. Remove Tray 1 from the printer.
  2. Remove the output tray and then remove all media from Tray 1.
  3. Insert the custom-size media into the tray.
  4. Slide the media width and length guides to the edges of the media.
  5. Replace the output tray and insert Tray 1 into the printer.
  6. Start the job from the computer after selecting appropriate media size and type.
